Dragon Fruit Powder
Dragon Fruit comes from a plant that is actually a cactus, the skin of the fruit being either Pink or Yellow with the fruit inside being a Pink (from which this powder comes from) or White, see related products. Dragon Fruit blossoms under moonlight and relies on nocturnal pollinators to continue its warm progress under the stars, fruiting 5-6 times annually. The fresh SuperFruit is freeze dried when fresh and delicious and this supernatural powder is created, fresh, nutrient dense fruit powder, no capsule, no binders, no fillers, just clean, absorbable Dragon Fruit Powder, through this process it maintains its amazing colour and living benefits.
This Tropical SuperFruit Powder contains several types of potent antioxidants like Vitamin C, B and Vitamin E with Omega 3 essential fatty acids but more uniquely its a source of Betalains. Test-tube studies have indicated Betalains can combat oxidative stress and may have the ability to suppress negative cells. Rich in Carotenoids, Beta-carotene and lycopene, these pigments give Dragon Fruit its vibrant colour. Dragon Fruit Powder is the perfect, vibrant ingredient for a super healthy, supernatural smoothie, but theres so much more you can do, add it to a healthy ice cream or desert and use in baked treats. It can be sprinkled on foods lightly or add a whole tablespoon to a drink, desert dish or to be used as a natural, safe food colouring.

Vitamin C, contained in many fruits but particularly Dragon Fruit helps brighten the skin. Try adding dried Dragon Fruit Powder to your smoothies and watch your skin glow radiantly.
Digestion... Research published in Food Chemistry shows that Dragon Fruits is rich in Oligosaccharides that help promote the growth of gut bacteria like Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria. A 2015 study on natural prebiotics in Thailand showed that the fruit helped increase healthy gut flora, which is important for smooth digestion. Dragon Fruits has a high amount of Fibre, this means that they can help bulk up bowel movements, facilitating smooth passage through the digestive tract, stimulating peristaltic motion, and inducing a release of digestive juices. By regulating bowel function with dietary fibre, this fruit helps in preventing conditions like constipation and perhaps even more serious digestive and stomach issues.

The SuperFruit that Gives
Immunity... The high level of Vitamin C present in Dragon Fruit helps boost immunity and it stimulates the activity of other antioxidants in the body as well. In a 2011 research study, the flesh and the peel of the White and Red Dragon Fruit (Pitayas) have a rich polyphenol and flavonoid content which fights free radicals.
Beautiful Hair... Supplementing natural Dragon Fruit Powder in your daily healthy diet helps in keep hair nourished and healthy. Its high amounts of nutrients help to reduce the damage done to hair by the chemicals present in artificial hair colour. It also helps improve the texture and bring back the shine to your hair.
Betalains also known as Betalain, betanin, Betanidin, Phyllocactin, Indicaxanthin, Hylocerenin, 2', O-Apiosylphyllocactin and Beet pigments, are natural plant derived pigments, people are drawn to them for their aesthetic and nutritional aspects.
With more conciousness to natural options the demand for a natural pigments like betalains as an alternative colorant in food products has grown.
Betalains from red beetroot are one of the most widely used food colorant, betalains are not as well studied as compared to other natural pigments such as anthocyanins, carotenoids or chlorophylls.
There are paper reviews on the pharmacological properties, such as anti-lipidemic and antimicrobial activity of Betalains derived from sources such as Red Beets, Amaranth, Nopal Cactus (Prickly Pear) and our current subject Pink Dragon Fruit for potential application as functional foods.

Delicious Smoothies from SuperFruit
Drink these smoothies regularly in summer for amazing health, in winter you can drink it once a week to enjoy a bit of light in the cold season. Smoothies in Ancient Purity's opinion should be lessened in the cold months.
Is fresh fruit preferable over Powder... of course it is, unless you are living or staying in South East Asia you're unlikely to have access. Importing whole fruit has issues with ripness and the carbon foot-print.
The Powder is from fresh ready Dragon Fruits in Thailand, freeze dried and then ground. You don't have to worry about it going off in days and still enjoy a massive health kick from fresh ground powder.
White or Red Dragon Fruit / Pink or White Pitaya
White Dragon Fruit (Hylocereus undatus) aka Pitaya blanca or white-fleshed pitaya) has pink-skinned fruit with white flesh. This is the most commonly seen "Dragon Fruit" sometimes a brave supermarket may import this one.
Red Dragon Fruit (Hylocereus costaricensis) Pitaya roja or red-fleshed pitaya, also known as Hylocereus polyrhizus) has red-skinned fruit with red flesh.
This amazing fruit does also come in Yellow, although we don't suppy that it is known as Hylocereus megalanthus (Pitaya amarilla or yellow pitaya, also known as Selenicereus megalanthus) has yellow-skinned fruit with white flesh.
The fatty acid compositions of Dragon Fruit seed oils show the following analysis
|Hylocereus costaricensis |
|Hylocereus undatus |
It is thought that Pink/Red Dragon Fruit is the more nutritious of the two but at Ancient Purity we actually prefer the sweetness and taste of the White Dragon Fruit. We may actually make a mix of both Dragon Fruits if enough people express an interest, let us know your thoughts.
